Sfursat di Valtellina DOCG

This is the oldest of the Valtellina wines. In around 1540 Ortensio Lando, an Italian philosopher and humanist, was one of the first to talk about it. Documents also show that as early as the 1300’s the Sforzato (which is the Italian version of the dialect word Sfursat) was produced and intended purely for family use and was often administered by the spoonful as a restorative medicine during diseases. Today, Sfursat is the most well-known and noble wine of Valtellina. The partially dried Nebbiolo grapes and the aging in barriques (barrels reserved for fine wine) confer an intense aroma of morello-cherry in alcohol and a very warm initial taste, with a soft tannin and good acidity. A perfect wine for combining with rich game dishes or, when paired with dark chocolate, a wine to relax with
